Descripción del producto


..".The book is nicely presented, with a useful set of goals at the beginning of each chapter. A good and comprehensive start towards creating a new and important sub-discipline...,," Times Higher Educational Supplement, 17th September 1999 #"Full review: It does not need me to tell you that we are currently experiencing an explosion of information in an ever increasing number of formats - CD ROM, the Web, online databases and archives come immediately to mind. Moreover this information is found increasingly in a wide variety of different formats - not only text, but still an moving images, sound files and data held in spreadsheets. Hypermedia and the Web is a book which takes on the challenge of considering how to develop hypermedia processes based on sound engineering principles. Interactive information is approached as a structure that requires management, quantification and documentation. The authors describe the goal of the book as one of being a resource that can be used to improve the development of hypermedia data, to engender an awareness that successful development of hypermedia data requires a disciplined approach, and to demonstrate the possible future of this particular field over the next five years. It is divided into three parts. T he first - Hypermedia development fundamentals - gives a definition of hypermedia, describes how it can be modelled and engineered, and discusses how to obtain a quality product and process. The second section covers the development process, methods and techniques. The final section is devoted to research developments, such as research projects, Matilda, Microcosm (an open media system), the Amsterdam Hypermedia Model and Relationship Management Methodology for example. The intended readership of Hypermedia and the Web is anyone involved in the development of hypermedia products, be they application developers, application analysts, Web developers, and content and information experts. Both theoretical concerns and practical issues are dealt with, so it will appeal to anyone with an interest in either aspect. The book is not, however for the faint of heart nor for those with just a passing interest in the subject. It goes into considerable detail and makes valuable use of graphics in order to provide clarity w hen the going gets tough. Having said that, the reader is still faced with a densely packed book full of theory and practical analysis and, although it is written in a friendly and approachable style, it's not exactly the type of book you'd want to read on the beach. This shouldn't be seen as a criticism, since that isn't an intention of the author of course. Nevertheless it is a book that requires considerable concentration in order to get the most out of it. On the other hand, once you can get involved in the book the authors carry you along at a fair pace and make few assumptions, explaining in detail as they go and bringing in examples as needed to illustrate particular points. Indeed, they point out that a technical background is not necessary. I have my doubts as to whether or not Hypermedia and the Web would appeal to the majority of information professionals in their day-to-day work. However, if you have an active interest in the development of hypermedia and really want to get to grips with the subje ct you could do no better than get a hold of a copy. Furthermore, it should be within easy reaching distance of anyone who is producing anything other than the very basic Web pages or databases, and really should be a must in the personal library of anyone seriously developing databases and Websites which combine a variety of types of information in different formats.," Phil Bradley, Internet Consultant, Trainer, Web Designer & Author, #

Reseña del editor

This is an easy-to-follow tutorial on the most popular text processing system used in the academic community. It explains formatting fundamentals and the more complex techniques for typesetting mathematical formulas. It is useful as a resource for those with access to the previous version (LATEX 2.09) who want to update themselves on the latest version - LATEX 2. The book is aimed at anyone interested in text processing and in particular those wanting to use LATEX to produce high quality documents. LATEX 2e is suitable for people with no previous LATEX experience. Written from the users point of view, this edition features many entirely new commands, replacing obsolete material as well as an appendix describing the main differences between old version LATEX 2.09 and the new version. There is also a glossary of all basic LATEX 2 commands. Many of the typesetting examples from the book are coded as templates and are available on the accompanying Website.

Single Best Book on LaTeX available! 9 de febrero de 1999
Por Un cliente - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
I've recently been through most of the beginning to intermediate LaTeX books and have found the bulk of them almost worthless in helping to learn and use LaTeX. This book is extremely readable and useful with correct syntax. The focus is unapologetically LaTeX2e and is not encumbered with outdated 2.09 commands. This is hands down the one book I would buy if I were only going to buy one. After this I would recommend Kopka, though that is much less well presented but definitely the next best (it is loaded with superfluous 2.09 command comparisons which just get in the way of getting through the book). It is way down hill after that, including Lamport's book (beautifully typeset but not clearly written).

Well-written but missing many things 31 de mayo de 1999
Por Un cliente - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
This book is well written and is great for anyone trying to put together reports and simple documents with no frills (base fonts and formatting). It does not cover font selection (NFSS), customization, and many other important things for advanced documents, like a book. If you need a much more comprehensive book for LaTeX I would recommend Kopka's book. The book is structured in a very confusing and sometimes illogical manner, but it covers much more. This book is much more efficient, but you may find yourself needing more.

Best beginner's book 9 de junio de 1999
Por Un cliente - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
In the TeX/LaTeX universe, I've found that you get the program for free, but then you wind up buying $200 worth of books to learn the program because no one textbook is all things to all people. This is hands down the best "introductory book." It's easy to read and gives you enough information to start up quickly. Hahn's book is outdated with its coverage of Latex 2.09, and Kopka's, while having lots of good stuff in it (if you can find it), reads like a scientific text translated from a foreign language--which it is.
If you want to start getting productive with LaTeX immediately, get this book.

More than worth the money! 25 de noviembre de 1997
Por Un cliente - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
My copy of this book is well worn, dog earned, and filled with enough paper clips to set off airport alarms. It has well over half a pad of pink post it notes extending from its pages. Several Xerox copies of book pages hang from my desk for quick reference. I would never go back to L*****'s book!
It was Diller's manuscript that allowed me to publish my dissertation with LaTeX in a timely fashion with minimal headache (from text processing!).
Pure TeX geeks will shun this book. It's too readable and too practical. If you want to hack away your grad school days solving Knuth's TeX programming exercises, this book is not for you.
Purchase this book if you actually want to get some productive work done with LaTeX!

THIS is your first book on LATEX 23 de octubre de 2012
Por Arnold F. Williams - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
This book is clearly written and well-edited, with a wealth of usable information presented in a way that is easy to find. I've been reading online books about LATEX and have bought other books from Amazon, and created a few (very few) documents with them. This, though, enabled me to go back and re-edit what I'd done, make it come out better, and, in a few asides, suggested new possibilities for using the /date function to create subject lines in a letter.

Even if you've already read something else, take a moment and go through this book. It's worth the price and the time: not something I can always say.
